I'm happy to turn my blog over to you, Rachel. Thanks so much for visiting
The Temptation of Laura is the second book in my Victorian romance series with eKensington. The series is set in and around Bath, England and for each book I have purposely mixed the rich with the poor. I love reading Victorian novels where the characters have to struggle financially and morally on their journey to finding their Happy Ever After.
The series began with The Seduction of Emily and the next book, What A Woman Desires will be published in January 2015. The Temptation of Laura is probably the darkest of the three in that Laura, my heroine, is a prostitute striving for a better life and fulfilling her dream of becoming an actress in the wonderful, mysterious city of Bath…I loved writing this book and hope your readers will enjoy it too.
Laura Robinson has always been dazzled by the glamour of the stage. But perhaps acting and selling one’s favors are not so different—for Laura must feign pleasure with the men she beds to survive. Now, with her only friend at death’s door and a ruthless pimp at her heels, escaping her occupation seems impossible. Hoping to attract a gentleman, she attends the theater. Yet the man Laura captivates is no customer, but a rising star and playwright…
Adam Lacey has been driven to distraction since the moment he saw Laura. She is his ideal leading lady come to irresistible life—and so much more. Certain they can make the perfect team on and off stage, he is determined to win her heart—and discover her story. But that is precisely what Laura fears. And she has no idea that Adam harbors shameful secrets of his own. Will the truth free them to love—or destroy all their dreams…?
